The meeting is open to members of the CAG network, as well as other associated, like-minded groups and organisations. We also moderate theme mailing lists for CAGs to communicate with each other between meetings.

  • Discover more about other groups’ activities and achievements
  • Share knowledge and skills
  • Explore opportunities for collaborative projects and funding bids
  • Gain advice and support from The CAG Project staff and other members
  • Network and socialise with other members

Meetings are held biannually across a range of themes – please see our page on Collaborate Groups for more details on next meetings of all the groups.

If you are a member of a group wishing to take part in this meeting then please get in touch with The CAG Project staff team: info@cagoxfordshire.org.uk

If you’re attending, please let us know in advance if you have any accessibility requirements, or if you aren’t sure how best to travel to the venue. Email us info@cagoxfordshire.org.uk and we’ll do our very best to help.
